Ross, the team's director of college scouting, is a hot name for potential general manager openings around the league. ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter reported last week that Ross will be a leading candidate for Carolina's GM opening.
The Jets fired Mike Tannenbaum on Monday morning and a source confirmed that the Jets reached out to the Giants for permission to talk to Ross, which was first reported by NFL Network.
"Everything I see from people like yourselves says that Marc's the hot prospect," Reese said. "We’ll see. Marc has done a terrific job for us. If he ends up going somewhere else, it will be a loss for us, but we’ll be happy for him if that’s the way it goes down."
